Frederick/Carroll County Renewable Waste-to-Energy Project on Schedule

Frederick County Government has announced the permitting process for the Frederick/Carroll County Renewable Waste-to-Energy (WTE ) project is proceeding on schedule.  The Frederick/Carroll County WTE project will be a brand new state-of-the-art facility, designed, and constructed by Wheelabrator. The county facility is being developed by NMWDA, a state agency that has successfully developed other WTE projects for Harford, Montgomery, and Baltimore counties, as well as Baltimore City.  Frederick Board of County Commissioners President Blaine Young states:

“After years of comprehensive evaluation and many public meetings, we are looking forward to breaking ground for the project by next July or August.  The county commissioners promise the taxpayers and citizens of Frederick County that we move prudently and cautiously when any commitment is made financially on their behalf.  Several financial studies in and out of house have been done to help guide the current and past boards.  The design, construction and operation of the 1,500 ton per day WTE facility has also undergone an independent review of the project financial model, which shows that Frederick County will save hundreds of millions of dollars over the current waste disposal practice of trucking waste to other jurisdictions. ”
